    The Metro is a really beautiful, elegant and efficient structure.
    Very clean stops and trains on time.
    Very useful for getting around the city; it is definitely recommended to visit the various points of the metropolis.

    This was the first place I visited in Tashkent when I arrived. The square is just around the park and there are two pools in from of the structure adorning the square. There are fountain shows at times in the pools. It is a good place to take a few photos.

    This 15th century building entrance is so beautiful. The architecture and craftmanship is so stunning. The classrooms have been converted to shops selling local crafts.

    We really loved wondering around the old city. There are so many beautifully designed mosques and madrassas. An absolute must do while in Tashkent!

    So far the place is nice and counts from the historical to a special place. After an early morning earthquake destroyed almost half of Tashkent on April 26, 1966, the monument was created in 1976 to honor the helpers and to remeber this terrible day.
    Historically relevant and tragic, for tourists - a short stop with 15-30 minutes by car, taxi or bus is okay.

    The monument is called the "Monument of Courage Earthquake Memorial".
    The monument built in Soviet art is large and massive in the middle of the square. A man stands protectively against woman and child, the granite block on which it stands is split with a crack and the symbolic clock shows the time of the accident.
    In the background there are reliefs on which the reconstruction can be seen.

    I personally think there are more impressive places to see for tourists. Even if it reminds of a very sad and tragic memory and the monument is big in impressive. So when there is enough time for a short stop there, it is okay

    While you are around Amir Timur Square, why not coming to this area and see many people, walking, talking and enjoying.

    The Kukeldash Madrasah is not the best mosque in Uzbekistan (though given its challengers, there is no shame in being unable to achieve that title) but it’s a very beautiful complex and is incredibly serene inside. Despite being right next to a main road, stepping into the complex (where the gardens are) feels like stepping out of the city altogether, and is an incredibly charming experience. Being next to Chorsu Bazaar, I’d recommend making a trip out to see these sites together.

    In the old part of the city of Tashkent, to the north of the "Chorsu" bazaar, there is the complex of Khast Imam or Hazrat Imam. The square has a great cultural and religious significance not only for Tashkent, but for the whole of Central Asia as a center of religious and cultural heritage. At its heart is the Hazrat Iman Mosque. Great to look at and walk across the square. Spectacular!

    Of the numerous sites surrounding the square, the most important is undoubtedly the Muyi Muborak Library. Muyi Muborak means 'the sacred hair', a reference to a holy relic held here: a hair said to have belonged to the Prophet Muhammad. Amongst its rare manuscripts collection, the library also holds the world's oldest Qu'ran. This Qu'ran was produced just 19 years after the death of Muhammad.

    Next door to the library is the 16th-century Barak-Khan Madrassa, and, immediately opposite it, the Tellya Sheikh Mosque, formerly Tashkent's main place of worship.

    Alone with the many blue domes, the minarets, this place is worth seeing. With the history that this place contains. Great.
    The only thing necessary. You need to speak Russian, or need a guide. Only a few people speak English.

    We visited this church after visiting the nearby Polish memorial to Anders' army. This area is easily reached by bus 1, 16, 18, 21, 30, 44 and 80. We took bus 80 to the Uspenskiy School bus stop and walked 5 minutes east on Taraqqiyot Street to reach the Cathedral and Polish memorial. The cathedral is an imposing structure, built in gothic style. The tall bell tower and many pointed columns and arches at the top make it seem more like a castle than a church. It is at the end of a large landscaped area with lawn and trees. The fact that there are no buildings nearby made it seem even larger. It is known as the Polish church, as many Polish soldiers and their families assisted in the early construction efforts.

    We arrived early when it was closed. the white sign near to the church stated operating hours of 10:30 - 17:00. There were decorations at the front lower level of angels blowing trumpets, seemingly signalling the birth of Jesus. To the left and right of this image, were sculptures of the cross. We particularly liked the use of arches and roof shapes on the sides of the building. To the rear of the building was a chapel, which was designed in similar style to the church. Grapevines covered the walkway to the chapel, which was a good photo op.

    Construction actually began in 1902 when the chapel was built. Services took place in the chapel and construction on the church started in 1912 by architect, Ludwig Panchakevicha. With the arrival of the Bolsheviks in 1917, construction was halted. The unfinished church was nationalised in 1925. The priest continued to have services in secret, and he was arrested by the authorities in 1937 and executed. During Soviet times, the church building was used as an Electrical Cable Plant, Obstetric School, administration and storehouse for medical equipment.

    The church building was eventually abandoned. In 1981 it was recognised as a historical monument and was re-registered as a religious organisation in 1990. Between 1993-2000 the restoration of the building was supervised by architect , Sergey Adamov. We had visited the catholic church in Samarkand which was of similar design, but much smaller. Other attractions nearby include the Eco Park across the street, the German Kirche and Shastri monument on nearby Sadik Azimov Street. If you take a bus two stops south, most buses run on Mirzo Ulugbek Avenue, where the St.Alexander Nevsky Church can be viewed.

    In a park, as with most parks in Uzbekistan with a large variety of different trees, this place is quite impressive. The pillared building next to the statue holds the names of so many who perished in the war. Hart breaking.. It makes you realize again that freedom is not for free. The monument itself depicts the mother, crying for her lost loved ones.
    Sadly, my camera had a bit of an off day, so no pictures.
